In the1960s, Geological Survey of Canada mineralogist Ann Sabina was tasked with developing guidebooks on rock and mineral collecting in Canada to address the growing public interest in geology. The result was an enduring Survey classic.
In 1964, Sabina, using existing literature, developed three volumes in the series Rock and Mineral Collecting in Canada, which covered mineral localities in different regions of Canada.
